Would non-drummers be interested in a 'style library' of standard drum patterns they can draw on to use as reference time on their tracks? These are not drums for uploading with a loop but for inserting into a project to help them keep a stable reference time to record templates with? I realise that option does exist by just searching the loops for drum patterns but for whatever reason, be it wrong tempo info or the structure's wrong, I feel some players may not be using them or possibly feel obliged to work with the track as is and upload against that template.
I'm offering to record a series of, say, one-minute basic drum patterns in different styles and tempos where the tempo is known (therefore can be easily time-shifted by most software), are edited so they are easily placed back-to-back (or looped) and have no fills or structure - just a straight drum pattern with human feel (and drift!).
Off the top of my head, I could do a load of rhythms across up to three tempo ranges (70, 110 and 150bpm - far enough apart to be time shifted to all other bpms without sounding too gross) with count-ins. For example:
8th-note rock/pop beat
16th-note rick/pop beat
4th-note rock/pop beat
Half time variants of the above
Double-time variants of the above
Jazz patterns (and swingy back beat variants)
Latin patterns (samba, boss-nova)
This is to be a library for other instrumentalists to use to help them record. Not for uploading to the loops.
Is this of value or am I just defeating using the search feature of Wikiloops? OR trying to put EZDrummer out of business? Of course, other drummers are welcome to contribute!!
